    A most interesting image....

    Sure enough, the Prinz Eugen division used the Odalrune symbol, but on their collar patches. During his time as the divisional commander, Artur Phleps also wore an oval sleeve patch with the Odalrune symbol.
    (I vaguely remember having read somewhere that initially all Prinz Eugen officers ranked Standartenfhrer or higher - i.e. those who wore their rank insignia on both collar patches - were to wear this insigne, but that this was never implemented and thus remained unique to Phleps.)
    SS-Standartenfhrer Stefan Hedrich shown wearing the oval insignia mentioned ( from the same astonishing site ) .

    ( 7 June 1943 - Gacko , Bosnia and Herzegovina - Yugoslavia ) .

    Sitting to his right I think is SS-Oberfhrer Dr. Kurt-Peter Mller wearing it also , which makes for 3 of these in a row .. !

    Notice the position compared to the Raute of previous pictures ..

    The insignia as worn by Artur Phleps himself - all 3 appear to have silver cord around them ..

    A good thing my colleagues do such fine picture research.

    Many thanks to Winkelman for pointing out these photographs; I hadn't spotted them. Something new to be learned every day!

    Indeed it certainly looks as though the policy of wearing the odal rune on the sleeve for Senior ranks was followed at least by some !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    If he is looking in on this from Vahalla, will likely thinks that we are all very nuts.
    Still valid generalizations almost a year later.

    Oddly enough, the pup on the right looks like an English Springer Spaniel...
